Internet Marketing Article Secrets

by: Mark Abrahams

I do internet marketing of my online business using article marketing as my primary method of lead generation. Now the reason I do this is that I like to keep things simple. The more convoluted your business model the easier it is to slip up. Before I was doing search engine optimization, ffa marketing, banner adverts, ppc and ezine marketing. These methods do work, but with the increase in competition they are becoming a lot more difficult to get effective results. I could spend hours optimizing my web site and with a new Google algorithm change my rankings could suffer. Alternatively if I used one of the other methods of marketing I would not see a profit immediately. Article marketing if used properly as a long term term strategy for marketing your articles will provide you with so much leads that you will not have the time to even promote your business using the other methods and it is free too.

When I first started with article marketing I really struggled to write good quality articles that would get accepted by the high quality article directories. The reason for this is that with any new skill that you learn you need to practise until you get very good at. Writing did not come naturally, but with practice I have become quite good at it. Now I enjoy marketing my internet business using articles as it is a lot more fun. Before I was using a lot of other methods for traffic generation, but I found them to be very frustrating.

The big advantage of using article marketing over the other methods of traffic generation is that your leads are a lot more qualified. For a visitor that reads your article to click on your web site they must really be interested in what you say. What I found is that these leads convert a lot better. So even though I get less leads than a lot of other methods of traffic generation these leads are highly targeted and convert so much better.

If you spend time sufficient time doing things properly to market your internet business using article marketing you can easily create a profitable business generating thousands of dollars of profit a month.

Expired Domains Targeted Website Traffic

By: gottapays

An average of 19,260 domain names expire every day. This number has increased tremendously since the same time last year when expired domain name figures were more like 1,200 daily. The expired domain name market is becoming increasingly popular with webmasters, who are locked in a fierce competition to stay one step ahead and get all the best domain names. The question is why do webmasters find someone else’s old domain name so interesting?

What happens a lot of the time is people register a domain name, or purchase it for a year, they develop a web site and advertise it, to get targeted traffic. This takes a lot of time, money and effort, then due to unfortunate circumstances they may forget to re-register their domain, either they have lost interest, over looked a reminder that domain renewal was due or changed their e-mail address during the year that they used to register. Then just like that the domain name is up for sale.

Because of this, the domain, or address that they have created and all targeted traffic with the domain name becomes available for purchase. Thousands of these expired domain names are available every day. There are several tricks to knowing how to find these domain names, and how to know which domain names are valuable and which are not, and, most importantly, how to get to them first.

There are many benefits for picking up an expired domain name, unlike a new domain name, the expired name already has traffic that can come from search engine promotion, directories, forums, back links and a whole host of other promotion methods. Webmasters are using this to their advantage, either selling the domains for a profit, selling a web site with traffic already entering the site, or use as valuable sub domains for their own enterprise, thus increasing traffic to their own sites.

Quite often webmasters will register with an online service that notifies them daily of pending expiry of domain names, that will soon be up for purchase. This can keep a web master that desired extra step ahead of competitors. Competition for expired domain names, especially one word, catchy .com names is fierce, as they are in high demand and easy to remember, having most likely been around for a long time. So it is not surprising that some of them can be very valuable, for instance, a domain name could sell for $1M, yet it only costs $10 to re-register.

Benefits for acquiring an expired domain name are numerous, depending on what you want to do with it. For a small sum of around $10-$15 you have the potential of increasing traffic to your web site instantly, saving you a considerable amount of time, money and bother. It could be the cheapest targeted web site traffic around.

SEO – General Guidelines

By: Andreas Obermueller SEO is an acronym for Search Engine Optimizing and refers to a set of good practices that teach you how to improve your website so that it would be easily tracked, indexed and ranked by search engines. Getting your site indexed by Google and other major search engines will help you attract visitors and increase traffic.

SEO is an exciting and ongoing process that involves not only an initial optimized website, but also permanent maintenance and evaluating search results on a regular basis. With the ever-changing Internet technology, SEO experts sometimes have contrasting opinions on what makes a good website. However, there are some general guidelines most of them agree on.

Design & Content

• You should build your web pages for human beings and not for search engines. A clean design and a strong content will ultimately drive search engine spiders to your site.
• Make a clear hierarchy and provide text links to each page.
• Don’t put to many links on a single page (maximum 100).
• You should include a site map to help users navigate easily through your website.
• Make sure you have clear TITLE tags, no HTML errors and all the links work.
• You should use text instead of images to display important elements, as search engine crawlers may not recognize a text inside an image.
• While keeping your content useful and clear, do use keywords that you know users would type to get to your page.
Technical Issues
• Most search engine crawlers see your website similar to the way a text browser sees it. Consequently, you should use a text browser, such as Lynx, to check your website. If you can’t see the whole page because of JavaScript, session IDs, DHTML or Flash features, search engine spiders will probably have trouble with crawling your website.
• Check with your web host to see if the server supports the If-Modified-Since HTTP header. This header tells Google whether the website content has changed since its last visit.
• While it is advised session IDs to track visitors’ path through the website, you shouldn’t do this for search bots.
• The robots.txt file on your web server tells spiders which directories can be crawled and which cannot. Make sure it’s updated and it doesn’t somehow block search engine crawlers.

Website Promotion

• After you’ve built your website and put it online, try to get high PageRank sites link to it.
• Submit your website to major search engines (Google, Yahoo/Altavista, MSN) to get it indexed, along with a site map that will tell them the site structure.
• Submit your website to relevant directories, such as Yahoo and Open Directory Project.
• Get involved in community based websites, blogs and forums and build a strong reputation.

Whether you choose to implement these techniques yourself or go to a SEO expert, no one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google and other search engines. Search engines change their crawling algorithms often and competitor websites appear all the time. However, following these basic SEO guidelines will improve your chances of increasing your website traffic and is a better practice than looking for a way to cheat on search engines in order to get your pages indexed.

How to Get a Guaranteed Top Position in the Pay Per Click Search Engines – For Free

By: Chris Towland

Getting a top position in a Pay per Click Search Engine can often be a very costly affair. For many popular search terms, the cost for every single click can often be in excess of $1, $5 or even above $10. Figures that are out of reach for many ordinary Internet marketers.

Similarly, Google’s recent changes have meant that many marketers who have been happily getting clicks through to their sites for less than 5c or 10c are now being forced to either increase their minimum bids to $5 (or even more) or simply lose their Adwords ads. For many, this has meant that the major source of visitors to their website has disappeared, literally overnight!

However, although the outlook may be increasingly bleak for low cost, high quality PPC traffic, a ‘new kid on the block’ in the pay per click search engine world is already starting to shake up the market and really place the power back in the hands of the internet marketer.

The Search Engine I’m talking about is already seeing enormous traffic numbers but very surprisingly …….. is giving Internet marketers the chance to grab the very top spot for their choice of keyword at absolutely no cost ….. and keep it for good!

That means that your website will always show at number one in their listings for your choice of keyword. No-one can ever knock you off top spot by out-bidding you.

The downside of course, is that there can only be one free top spot for each keyword, and once your keyword has gone ……. it’s gone. The good news for us at the moment however, is that although this search engine is receiving massive traffic (it’s Alexa ranking is already below 25,500) it has not yet been spotted by most other Internet marketers.

And there’s more good news! Usually, when you open a new pay per click account you need to hit your credit card to add some funds to get you started. This PPC search engine however, is totally free to join and immediately gives you $50 in free PPC cash. What’s more, when you join you are given your own search portal and every search you do on your own portal gives you extra PPC $’s (you could use your portal as your browsers homepage for example and simply do your own searching from there) or you could add your search portal to your website so that every search anyone makes gives you additional dollars.

There’s a lot more I could tell you about this new search engine and how it is perfect for you and me as Internet marketers, but while you’re reading this someone else could be grabbing your perfect top keyword from right under your nose.

Therefore, I’d suggest that if you’re interested in getting your hands on a top spot for free, you take a look at the search engine straight away by following the link below. Then, to reserve your keyword and get your $50 in free PPC cash, simply click the link at the bottom of the page.

Here is the link you need: http://www.searchbigdaddy.com/look

I hope you’re in time to get hold of your perfect keyword so that you can always appear at position number one and get tons of targeted traffic month after month.

Good And Bad SEO Practices

By: Andreas Obermueller Search Engine Optimizing is a set of practices developed to help you get a high traffic and PageRank, while simultaneously building a useful and functional website that will respond to the needs of your potential users. While some website owners are getting their site indexed by following and enhancing these guidelines, others are looking for a way to sneak in and crawl up search engines by developing various strategies to cheat spiders.

Most search engines have their specific rules on which SEO practices are legitimate and which are not. While they disagree on some borderline issues, they do have a set of basic principles in common.

Good SEO Practices

• creating logically-structured pages
• logical paragraph use
• including a site map
• providing clear links to each page
• using descriptive and not too long meta-tags
• validating you code
• providing information-rich content that visitors would find useful
• creating your website content based on the users' needs as if search engines didn't exist
• using spell-check
• avoiding duplicate content

Bad SEO Practices

• using invisible text and links to create false keyword density
• using non-compliant HTML to manipulate relevancy (e.g.: a title that doesn't have anything to do with the page content)
• using CSS to manipulate relevancy (e.g.: using hidden elements by executing code to reveal them)
• sending automated requests to search engines
• using doorway pages created just for search engines
• using machine generated code to produce keyword-rich content
• cloaking – presenting a different content to users than to search engine spiders
• linking to spammers and other bad websites
• participating in linking schemes to increase PageRank
• creating pages that install viruses and other badware
• using unauthorized software to submit pages, check ranking etc.
• re-submitting the website without any reason

Borderline Issues

• inserting comments in the HTML code
• using invisible form elements to hold keyword values
• using HTML elements for keyword stacking (e.g.: image alts)
• using machine generated code for usability reasons (e.g.: in order to check for browser versions)

These borderline issues are controverted and ambiguous techniques. Most of the time it is very difficult to say whether these techniques were used to trick the spiders or only for usability purposes. The search engine is the one who has to make the ultimate decision.

Major search engines are constantly fighting against illicit techniques to get your website indexed and increase your PageRank and developing new and improved automated solutions to detect them. They even encourage users to report any website that is trying to abuse SEO guidelines. Thus using illegitimate ways to crawl up search engines may result in your website being banned. Once it's been removed from the search engine index, it will no longer appear in search results.

Google, as well as other search engines, are trying to develop a pro-active attitude among website owners and convince them it's more efficient to make use of legitimate SEO practices. One thing you should always ask yourself when building new features and writing content is whether you would be doing it even if search engines weren't there at all. This is the best way to drive traffic to your website and get better ranking.
